Starbucks recently shut down 8,000 of their cafes so their baristas and managers could learn about their “unconscious bias” and how to keep them from causing microaggressions. Starbucks is now trying to be “color brave” instead of “color blind.” In response, James Woods destroys Starbucks.
So what caused all of this? It’s hard to even remember at this point. Two black men were loitering. When they refused to leave, the Starbucks manager called the police. As a result, Starbucks has told the world about their “unconscious bias” training and also announced a new policy: you are allowed to hang out in the store without making a purchase.
On Wednesday, James Woods took to Twitter to share an account of what a Starbucks exec described as the model response to an unruly customer:

It was business as usual with a James Woods tweet: it set the internet ablaze. Check out some of the responses:
Good Lord. The job of the barista is to make coffee, serve coffee, and cleanup after coffee. Now they have to be bouncers, therapists & social workers

What’s a third place?

It’s not the winner, it’s not the runner-up…it’s third place.

That’s basically how my wife treated misbehaving third graders as a teacher. It is sad that America has come to this – repremanding adults who are rude in public.

Have we come to this? Once at a diner in my small hometown, I told the Greek owner that her $3 drinks looked like they were in a dixie cup. She told me to get my sorry ass out of there and never come back. She cursed me all the way out the door. I was cool with it. Her store. pic.twitter.com/U7Y2w4IyoR

Instead of taking on the heat for kicking out two “customers” who weren’t buying anything, the far left coffee company has decided to reformat the way their stores run. This is complete insanity.
It’s good we have someone like James Woods to point out how absurd this is.
